Fluid Handling

We offer a large variety of pumps for everything from microfluidics to general fluid handling applications. Our peristaltic pumps are easy to setup and clean, offer continuous flow with virtually "infinite" volume (depending only on capacity of your source), require no contact with metal or the pump and are good for large volume pumping. Our syringe pumps provide accurate volume control and are an excellent choice for lower volume applications. Our pneumatic PicoPumps are non-pulsatile and designed for delivery of very small volumes.
